Midland Baseball loses twice at Mount Marty

Midland Baseball loses twice at Mount Marty

YANKTON, S.D – The Warriors faced Mount Marty in a road matchup Sunday afternoon. The Warriors were not able to get any offensive rhythm in the first game losing 9-0, and then their comeback efforts were not enough in game two where they fell 8-4.

Game One: Mount Marty 9, Midland 0

The Warriors’ offense never found its groove getting just three runners on base and finishing with only 22 at-bats in the seven-inning game.

Lancers’ pitcher Dylan Nicholson pitched a complete game while striking out five Warrior batters and giving up just two hits.

The Lancers offense was hot right out of the gates connecting on their first four at-bats, culminating with a three-run homer to right field to earn a 4-0 advantage at the end of the first inning.

The Lancers scored in each of the first four innings creating more than enough breathing room to earn the shutout victory.

Game Two: Mount Marty 8, Midland 4

The Warriors began with many of the same offensive struggles from game one, while they were able to earn more hits it took seven innings before they were able to bring a runner home.

The Lancers took advantage of the Warriors’ slow start with multi-run innings in the fourth and sixth on their way to a 7-0 lead.

In the seventh inning, Midland’s offense was sparked by singles from Sam Braun and Connor Petersen and those two later scored after Kyle Weber singled to right field.

Warrior Dakota Thornton homered to deep right-center field in the top of the eighth, which reignited comeback hopes that continued in the ninth when Trey Nichols homered to center field.

The scores cut the deficit to four and then Kyle Weber and Chase Reynolds reached base on walks, but after a mid-inning pitching change the Warriors struck out and then flied out to end the game.
